Aaron Knows Who Butters His Bread...

Industry Observer

The now highest paid NFL player, Aaron Rodgers knows where his strength comes from, it comes from the Lord. He acknowledges before millions just where his talent has come from and takes the time to thank his Creator. We should all do the same. As Coach Lombardi would say, "We are shooting for perfection and although we will never be perfect, in that process, we will find excellence."

Jeremiah 16:19

O Lord, my strength and my stronghold, And my refuge in the day of distress, To You the nations will come From the ends of the earth and say, “Our fathers have inherited nothing but falsehood, Futility and things of no profit.”

Even those making the big bucks need to be grounded by a higher being!

This is awesome!  We are seeing this more and more - celebs, sports stars, etc - coming out and giving praise where praise is due.  Makes my soul sing!

Sadly many people who find fame lose where they started from.  They need to get back to where they came from and what gave them the chance to be who they now are.

Frank, And there is none higher than Jehovah!

Linda, Mine too! Especially when they play for my favorite team.

Bill, It's only because fame means more to them than God. Since my background was a full time musician years ago, I have a soft spot in my heart for musicians. Many take the wrong road as I did years ago. The church didn't pay for musicians except the director or organist, etc. In King David's day, he EMPLOYED thousands of musicians full time to worship and intercede 24/7. Fame and pop culture would be a smidgen compared to what it is today had the church followed that example. There would have been little reason to chase after fame and fortune when you were paid for doing what you love the most.
